Distance Learning - BA History

Designed to incite, energise and stimulate your historical imagination, the BA History provides a structured route into the past in all its guises. The diverse subject matter ranges from an introduction to ancient philosophy to civil rights in 1960's America, and from ethnicity, identity and citizenship in modern British life to the interpretation and writing of history.

This programme will enable you to:

  • expand your knowledge and understanding about the past, and reflect on the diversity of past human experience
  • gain a critical insight into the range of interpretations, theories and approaches that historians have adopted and tested over time
  • cultivate a broad range of skills which are highly valued by employers, such as the ability to think critically, assess evidence of many kinds and express ideas with precision. These skills can be transferred to many different careers or provide a grounding for further academic study.

Studying history will equip you with a broad range of skills, including critical thinking and writing,  that can be transferred to many different careers. History graduates can go on to be anything from advertising executives to journalists, teachers to museum curators.
